Wonderful instructor!Apr 2, 2018Verified
Debi has done an excellent job with my 12 year old son. She has been able to help him with math, geography, and English. He has even emerged from the tutoring sessions with a smile on his face, despite his general distaste for homework and a grumpy disposition on the way in. Thank you Debi!Apr 27, 2017Verified
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started years ago teaching English to some friends who barely spoke English, and loved that I was learning at the same time !
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with people from age 4 up to age 85! I have taught people from many other countries and backgrounds, and I've worked with a variety of disabled people, too. I love my work. I want each person to discover who they can be, and how great it feels to achieve.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I have young piano students who can hold their own at jazz jam sessions. I smile when my math, reading, and writing students learn HOW to study, and do it willingly. I've enjoyed teaching piano students who are seriously disabled, but are able to release their feelings at the piano. I love teaching international people all aspects of the English language, and have discovered a lot of things along the way. When reading students get that they really can read, they beam. I love that.
